Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Should I use Matinee for this?

I have a pachinko-like physics demonstration, and I'd like to create some kind of guided camera that follows the movement of the balls. I have never used matinee (or any custom camera rig outside of the template player cameras), so I'm not sure how I should approach this. I'd like to be able to adjust the vertical, front/back, up/down movement as well as tilt.

Here is what it looks like with me just using the mouse to tilt.

48 Second Clip

In my mind, I'm imagining creating a custom timeline that animates a camera doing all of it's positional and rotational changes, and then I would drive that timeline by finding the average Z position of all the balls in the scene, where the starting Z position of the balls represents the beginning of the timeline and their resting position at the bottom represents the end.

Am I on the right track, or is there a better way?
